The protocols I am using do not use fingerprinting for error correction

You will notice that equation (1) on page 207 looks an awful lot like
the default boost::hash implementation.

Just to be sure, I do use my own implementation instead of boost::hash
(and hash_combine) because Daniel does not guarantee its consistency.
That is fine with me, but I really would like to see some named hash
functions in boost that do not change, as Andrey suggested.

This sounds like a suitable a GSoC project...
